Wow. Donald Sterling really needs to stop calling people on the phone.
Yet AGAIN a private conversation he had with an acquaintance has been recorded and is now being leaked to the public!
The latest audio from the disgraced LA Clippers owner has him angrily declaring that he’s NOT a racist, despite the controversy that was sparked last month.
He can be heard on the new tape telling a friend:
"You know I’m not a racist! I grew up in East L.A. East L.A. you die to get out of there! I got out of East L.A. I was the president of the high school there. And I’m a Jew! 50% of the people there were Black and 40% were Hispanic. So people must have a good feeling for me!”
You really think throwing out made up statistics about the demographics of your high school is going to help you at this point?
He then went on to try and explain how it’s impossible for anyone in his position in the NBA to even be a racist!
He can be heard yelling:
"How could you be in this business and be a racist? Do you think I tell the coach to get white players? Or to get the best player he can get?”
The unidentified man that he’s speaking to then suggests that Sterling will have to sell his team and that the long list of interested buyers include Sean “Puff Daddy” Combs and Oprah Winfrey.
With a guffaw, Sterling comments:
“You can’t force someone to sell property in America. I’m a lawyer. That’s my opinion.”
You’re right, Donald. No one can force you to give up your beloved Clippers to the highest bidder. But what’s the point of holding onto them?
You’ve got a lifetime ban. Your image is forever tarnished. What good is owning the team at this point?
Sell the Clippers to Puffy and O and go live a quiet life far, far away. Maybe on an island. With white sand beaches.
Very, VERY white sand.
